It's a tradition in many households to boil eggs over the weekend of Easter and dye them. This was never really a tradition in my home growing up, at least not that I remember. We would participate in our ward Easter egg hunt the Saturday before and then have a nice dinner and some treats on Easter Sunday, but decorating eggs was never really part of the festivities.

So this year was the first year I decorated Easter eggs.My first egg was the one in the back of the carton. You can't see it very well but it has a flower on it.

A few people from our ward happened to stop by and joined us for a few minutes.

Ignore my weird face in the picture above and focus on the egg. I was quite proud of this one. It came out with a slightly marbled look which I thought was pretty cool.

After decorating the eggs, I can understand why this was never a tradition in our home. It was fun to make the eggs look nice but hard-boiled eggs don't keep forever. Just a few hours after we finished decorating, the colorful shells were cracked and the hard-boiled eggs became deviled eggs.

Obviously, the most important thing to celebrate on Easter is the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Savior. I am grateful for his sacrifice for us and I am especially grateful for the knowledge that He overcame death and, as a result of this resurrection, so can we.
